    Bumping this because this really needs more recognition. We really need to find a way to get more oceanic parts without screwing up the beaches (e.g. raising the sea level). Very good find.

    posted a message on The Recent Focus on Exploration-Good or Bad?
    I can't really vote. Here's why:

    Exploration is different for everybody, because some people like exploring for structures and strongholds and whatnot. For the most part, this group of people is satisfied.

    Then there's a group of people who like exploring for unique landforms, gravel beaches, nice sand beaches, floating islands, caves (because caves are always easy to find now), etc. The last time this group was satisfied, for the most part, was in beta-1.7.3, but even that generator wasn't perfect.

    ^edited due to confusing sentence structure.


    The poll is asking a very broad question, so I cannot answer.

    Was it ever intended to solve this issue?


    Yes and no.

    Dinnerbone responds to first letter.

    Dinnerbone agrees to implement something that can set the frequency for biome appearance

    Most likely, it will be implemented, but this will not change the situation unless they restore randomness again.

    Yeah, it is about time for more biomes. We haven't had any new ones since 1.2. I do think that they should make like an autumn woods or something.


    Reread the OP.

    Terrain Sliders? (Explain please)


    It's something that won't solve the issue unless randomization is restored.

    Every single thread about terrain is saying "Oh we don't want the old generator!"

    Why? There's nothing wrong with it AT ALL.


    The old generator is called the OLD generator for a reason. Either we need steady updates to the generator or we need a complete overhaul.

    Another terrain thread! Just shows how drastically important this issue is.

    The Minecraft subreddit has always been terrible. Not all subreddits are the same (especially the small ones, those are the good ones)

    Besides, either everyone on that thread is a fanboy, or they cannot point out the plethora of other issues the game has.


    The problem with the Minecraft community (MCF included) is that many people don't realize that this game is really not optimized and has way too many unpolished, unfinished, and ultimately iffy features that need to be worked on. Instead, they ask for MOAR. Then MOAR gets implemented, and the community has fun for 1-2 weeks, and then everything gets boring again.

    Location/timezone: EST/EDT
    Why do you want to join/play beta? I have the luxury of having Exalm's OldDays for the sole purpose of restoring variation to the terrain, but no SMPs really contain what I am looking for. Instead, they are filled with mods and plugins that just ruin the vanilla experience. Returning to a B1.7.3 server would not only restore the fun-factor in the game (in my opinion), but it would give me a chance to return back to a community. Sure, I'd like to have the new wood blocks and jungle trees and whatnot, but I really don't mind.
    What are your favorite/best creation(s): I wish I still had pictures. Some of these were in SMP. Let's see here:
    1) Intercontinental subway system to serve a vanilla SMP community
    2) Houses/Stores, especially shotgun houses
    3) Established a fortified town with a friend
    4) Established my own city on vanilla server
    5) Established city with a group of people on Buxville
    6) Mines. Huge mines.

    The list could go on and on...
    What type of skills do you have in Minecraft (building/redstone)? I'm good with building, and I can do decent aesthetics within them. My redstone capabilities are alright--I can make locks and other types of systems. My favorite best/creations list should cover this.
    How long have you played Minecraft for? Since Alpha 1.2.
    Is there anything you would like to see on the server? Complete vanilla. I wouldn't mind plugins like LWC (I'm not even sure if that exists anymore;I haven't been on in a while) for chest protection. Basic security plugins like these would not affect gameplay whatsoever, thus preserving the true meaning of "vanilla." I'd like to join a safe and creative community which I can rely on to have some longevity.

    Here's the Reddit link:

    http://www.reddit.co...d_and_revealed/


    The Reddit community seems very discombobulated. I saw a comment discussing on how EH mountains could be made higher. The main comment discusses the importance of a terrain update but only elaborates on potential new features, and not restoring variation that was present in pre-1.8.

    Reddit makes me mad.

    Just a question, is this thread sporting for surreal and impractical terrain, or terrain resembling what you'd find in a camera advertisement?


    What's so impractical about restoring options to the people?

    Quote from NLferdiNL

    Couldn't agree more. While there are those good seeds out there for todays generator. It is rare. All and all if they just modified it just to balance everything out a bit. Cause if it was all mountain and no flat it wouldn't be much of a use either. But the caves thing I agree on. In 1.7 I had such a hard time finding a good cave. I found one that was almost infinite until I went through it entirely obviously.

    I had hard time finding lava ( wut ) in a good cave either. Now I have to be careful I don't dig into one.

    I can't support this more. :)


    I keep seeing the phrase "good seeds."

    The thing is that all seeds are the same with the exception of where things are. In 1.7, finding the Glacier mountains on a seed that isn't Glacier is extremely possible--it just wouldn't be ideal to be searching for them. The same thing goes for seeds today, except that finding anything close to them is impossible. One seed isn't better than another. It's just convenient to be able to pick them because a lot of people are too lazy to explore.

    Simply enough, we are limited to flat land, hilly land, or mountainous land that all cannot be found within each other. They're all separated out like city-zoning regions. It sucks.

    Pre-1.8 wasn't as limited as the current terrain generrator we have now. Sure, the majority of the land that is currently given to us is flat, but its always like this. In pre-1.8, if you didn't like a piece of land, then you could travel somewhere else (heck, it could even be the same biome) and your chances of finding something different were high. Now, every forest biome looks the same, every desert looks the same, every jungle looks the same, every taiga looks the same, and Mojang tries to compensate this with X-hills biomes, which are just as predictable as the previously mentioned biomes. Maybe you enjoy seeing predictability everywhere you go, but a lot of people would like to see cave-size variation, height variation, and the return of the less-predictable beaches (including gravel beaches). If varying terrain was existent, there would be no reason to complain.
